When you’ve decided to build a house in Hauraki, you start with research. You’ll find that there’s plenty of resources offering advice for buyers of existing properties. But, there is less information available for people wanting to build new.

Here are our most important considerations to ensure that the home you design and build will match your family’s requirements:

Some of the fun parts of building your own home include picking all the fittings and finishing. This means you can have the exact floor plan you want with the perfect kitchen cabinets and anything else you can think of. There are some challenges to building your own home though.

The neighbourhood

Choose your land space in the Hauraki neighbourhood that is your ideal community for your current and future requirements. Also try to allow for return on investment if you choose to sell one day.

See if you can meet some of your potential neighbours. Spend some time in the area and with the local community to see if it’s the right place for you. Look at the educational facilities and other amenities in the area, look at your commute distance, and take all these factors into account before starting your build.

The building company

Ensure you choose a highly recommended building company that has been in the industry for many years and produces a high quality home. Check their reviews, website, and make sure everything matches. You could even talk to some previous clients to judge their satisfaction.

Understand the floor plan. If you need to, use a measuring tape to lay out the sizes of the rooms in your current home so you can compare to the house plans. Make sure the layout is as per your needs and requirements before the building process starts.

Your builder will provide you with a contract. While some are fairly straight forward, some can be quite complex. In either case, it’s important to have a legal professional go over the contract. Then you can be sure to understand everything before you sign for the builder to go ahead.
